SFS Cavalcade North America 2019

Carnegie Mellon University

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
May 20-23, 2019





Hosted by the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University

The SFS Cavalcade is a 2.5-3.0 day conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with eight-to-eleven parallel sessions. Our goal is to provide a setting that produces the kind of in-depth participation of a smaller conference while accommodating the variety of papers of a larger one. The host school’s faculty and Ph.D. students receive complimentary registration to the conference and all events. The SFS Finance Cavalcade conference is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies.


The submission period has ended. The deadline was December 7, 2018. The submission fee was $50. For papers in which ALL co-authors are doctoral students, the submission fee was waived. The submitted paper must not have been accepted (or conditionally accepted) at a journal. You may submit papers that have been presented (or are scheduled to be presented) at the WFA, AFA, or Cavalcade Asia-Pacific. Authors of accepted papers must be able to attend their session regardless of which day the session is scheduled; if an author cannot make it to the scheduled time, the conference reserves the right to pull the paper.


Decisions will be sent mid-February. If you selected dual submission, you will receive a separate email from RCFS or RAPS.


Registration will be available on this web site in March.

Conference Dual Submission Option

You may elect dual submission to either The Review of Corporate Finance Studies or The Review of Asset Pricing Studies. If you wish to be considered for dual submission, please ensure you select the appropriate category while submitting. If the journal you select decides not to send your paper out for review, the editor may refer your paper to the other journal, if appropriate, or to The Review of Financial Studies, for possible review. Thus, by selecting the dual submission option, you have implicitly agreed to be reviewed by any of the three SFS journals. Please see our Dual Submission Policy.
